. it is about 9.6% right now, and the fact that we have not done much about that in city hall i think is about to change. that is certainly something i will be focused on, putting people back to work. it is an individual issue, but it is a family issue, and we have a lot of families still struggling, and a think people have lost sight of that. hopefully, we will be getting out of this recession soon, but we need to do a lot in city hall to accelerate getting out of the recession, making sure families are back at work, making sure children are provided for. that is my biggest priority. >> talk about the issues facing your district specifically and how you are going to balance the issues facing the city at large against those in your district. >> we definitely have a few big projects for issues -- or issues we're paying a lot of attention to and we will continue to devote a lot of attention to, both myself and my staff. one of biggest ones is the planned development of the new campus for california and pacific medical center. that has dominated a lot of city-wide dialogue in the past few years.
francisco has the greatest and most vibrant nightlife of any major city in the country. i want to thank my colleague scott wiener for helping to showcase the importance of the other nine to five economy. the impact of all that you do has an impact on our job situation and local economy, and to highlight all of the great work that we can do together to ensure that the sectors that you all represent, the sectors that you work for, that you employ people for connaught is one of the greatest sectors in san francisco. i hope we will take the opportunity of the america's cup to showcase our clubs, our restaurants, our nightlife events. as someone who represents the broadaway neighborhood, an area of town that i used to spend a lot of time in when i was in my 20's -- but actually, very few locals take the time to head to the beach on broadway. our neighborhoods are coming together to say that broadway is open to the rest of the world as well as san francisco. i want to put san francisco back on the map when it comes to music. to make sure that we have the type of entertainment that we used to be
bicycling as options to get around town. many cities in the world have far more people working or on bicycles into blocking or on bicycles. they are pleasant most of transit and are efficient. -- many cities in the world have far more people walking or on bicycles. they are pleasant and efficient forms of transportation. that will take cars off the road and make it easier for those who drive. if we want to create a world- class transportation system, we have to make a commitment to each of these modes of transit to allow us to move where we need to go. >> is it safe for pedestrians on the streets? >> it is not. in recent years, we have had too many pedestrian accidents. there are estimates it costs our cities several hundred millions a year because of traffic accidents, injuries, and fatalities. i am asking one of our transit agencies to study where we're spending our dollars around the district and whether we invested more money would help to reduce our overall costs that come when a pedestrian is hit by a car. >> let's talk about crime in your district. how is the police depa
housing stock which our city badly needs. and now the planning commissioner, i made sure that new housing includes units that are accessible for middle and lower income people. i introduced requirements that market rate housing developers invest in public open space, transit affordable housing and child care as a condition for approval of their projects. for the last nine months, as d-five supervisor, i have demonstrated how i will governor if elected for a full term. my office has worked on parking, and tour bus issues in alamo square and nopa and violence in the poor conditions of our public housing in the fillmore and western addition. and dealing with liability and the overcrowding of muni and ped and bike safety. we are advocating for additional bike lanes on oak and other issues. on all of these my job as district five supervisor has been to respond as fast as possible and make sure that city hall is working for everyone in the district. on november 6th, i hope that you will vote chris teen olague for district five supervisor, i am the most qualified candidate in the race. >> hello,
a major event in the city. that is something that helps bring up the economic opportunities of a community, and that is very important. if you think about the role of sports in san francisco, we have to think about the giants and how amazing that whole experience was for us in terms of the world series. we had people in my district as we were coming in for the parade on muni. everybody was dressed in giants colors. everybody was in such an elated mood. everybody was brought together, no matter what ethnicity, what community, what neighborhood, what socio-economic place you were from. people were excited and happy. that is something that is very unique to sports, that sports can pull people together. very much in the same way, the 49ers are an important part of the community and san francisco 's identity, and i would love to do what we can to help them today. >> if you have a lot of projects in your district that you are excited about. can you share any information about the goings on in your district? supervisor chu: our district again has so many families, and we think about how we plan f
, uniquely is founded on the grounds of innovation, we are here in the city where so much that have has happened in so many profound ways. and it seems like every time that we have such disruption in this country. and this time... the financial down turn and the pressure of cyber security and the pressures of so many other things, you know, in... how are we driving innovation forward to champion out of that like we have done over and over and over in the history of this country. in the government, plays a fascinating role in that. i will give you an example of a place that we are doing that, that gets the president excited. and that is when you are thinking differently about the digital assets and in last may... in new york and throughout the very non-governmental place to give a speech, got on stage and talked about fostering this of the 21st century government and the digital government and the strategy are things like we are going to unlock the data of government by the fall. taking the rich stores of data that we have in the government and making it open and making it readable, and

, i have been teaching at san francisco state. i ran the immigrant rights coalition in the city in the 1990's for several years. i'm also an immigration attorney, and a lot of my passion is supporting in power met for immigrant communities in the city as well. >> why did you choose to live in san francisco? supervisor mar: a lot of people bring this up, but is one of the most exciting, culturally diverse places in the world. learning about new cultures and people from different parts of the world, like a gateway neighborhood. not just for the new chinatown, as it was called in the 1980's, but for russian-speaking immigrants, people from the caribbean. there are so many different mixtures of people, and i guess my district, like many other neighborhoods in the city, is kind of what draws me to it. and just the political life of people very passionate about their own communities and their life, but also interacting with others from around the world. it has been wonderful. i also am really a supporter of the arts, especially community arts, and just learning about other people's ex
because san francisco is one of the most innovative cities in the galaxy and it's a very great place to be the home of the challenge america summit, the first-ever challenge america summit. so it's now my job to introduce our first speaker of the night, who is going to officially kick off the first-ever challenge america summit, somebody who has been verylfe instrumental in creating a movement around innovation in san francisco. just a few months ago, announced october as innovation month inl-mj4p&c"p san francisco, and is doing a whole lot of work on, you know creating a@g real ecosystem for entrepreneurs, for governments for everybody to create new ideas and new innovations. please join me in welcoming mayor ed lee to the floor. >> [applause.] >> thank you. thank you, josh. welcome, everybody. now that i know where i'm at i want to welcome all of you, i want to of course thank the night challenge -- night rover challenge, nasa, of course, for being here. i also want to thank s.p.u.r. again for hosting it. you know, when i started working with s.p.u
back in a few minutes. we will send it down to sarah in notion city. >> -- ocean city. >> it it really is a beautiful evening, a lot of people are outside this evening. the water is relatively calm. the biggest concerns they have right now are flooding and beach erosion. they tell me there is an emergency plan in place. officials are watching the storm's track. they're expecting some flooding, so there are high water markers in place. otherwise, they're not many sandbags out. the city is relatively busy. officials are meeting regularly to evaluate the track. >> we are in the beginning stages of making sure that we have lists items put away. -- loose items put away. just trying to get ahead of things. we are in the prepared this mode, the information of mud. -- mode. >> the mayor is not expecting to see evacuation's this weekend. most of the visitors to ocean city will be leaving by late sunday, sunday afternoon anyway. as far as residents, at that point, they will most likely be asked to stay inside. >> it does not even look like an evacuation city for ocean city. the worst part of the
really before the m.t.a. and city realized they needed a complete streets bond. i believe a couple weeks ago, the m.t.a. kicked off community comprehensive planning and walking tours and all sorts of efforts to try to coordinate pedestrian count downs from union to market street. keep an eye out for further input on that. another one of the bicycle projects included in prop k allocation is the long awaited market and valencia street gap projects which deals with accommodating a left turn. i won't go into the details, but the good news is construction should start this month. a couple of the pedestrian safety projects in this district, the first one at tenderloin safe routes to school is a federal project just under a million dollars awarded to the m.t.a. you can see the description on the scope. we are waiting for m.t.a. schedule and the design funds were just obligated in june. this project should get going in full swing very soon. one project i will mention is a regional transportation for liveable grants cities for the alley ways, includes frees and crosswalks. it was originally award
call for baltimore and the ocean city area. we have more on what could happen with the different scenarios with sandy, coming up. >>> what a mess that's coming our way. winds, rain and high tide, coupled with a storm surge, producing flooding along the bay, befores that's one of the many concerns with the storm. jeff hager is standing by live in baltimore with more on the counties preparations. >> emergency managers in baltimore and harford counties are well underway and preparing for hurricane sandy, they want you to be prepared as well. the rush is already on, among boat owners to move vessels as we witness at the outer point yacht club, after past storms like irene isabelle and agnus, many learned the hard way to prepare for the worst. >> it could have high winds for two days, and potentially higher than normal tides. it's low down to where we were on the beach, the beach stuff, we took everything up the hill and on the trailer, stick it in the garage, and when it goes by we truck it back out. >> reporter: the county has people on stands by. along with swift water rescue crews
the president has received from the salt lake city tribune or "washington post" or one from colin powell yesterday, it had to do with barack obama the policies of the past four years and what he wants to do in the future but the fact that they have no idea what this other person is. and they have no idea who he's going to bring into the white house with him if he were to end up winning. >> as we talk about endorsements "the new yorker" had an extended endorsement of barack obama. not mitt romney. i want to read an excerpt. i thought they both argued on behalf of the president's record thus far and argued sort of the counter factual option which is, if the key note of obama's administration has been public investment whether in infrastructure, education or health, the keynote of romney's candiedisy has been private equity. a democracy cannot lay off its failing citizens. it cannot be content to leave any of its citizens behind and not the 47% who romney wishes to fire from the policy. very strong words. we've gone back and forth about who mitt romney is and how the campaign portrayed him.
officers who deal with lb situations and other compliance officers to the city administrator's office. then you have you guys in the middle of the situation changing the rules without really getting the input from the lbes. nobody who is not a san franciscan should come here and say, i spoke to some lbes in san francisco and they kind of agree to go with the flow. that doesn't work. we don't want to badger sfpuc. but the fact is we lost on the waste system improvement project, and we were not, i repeat, not lose on the sewer system improvement project. because i have over 500 young men, i brought some of them here. i don't want to fill this chamber with some strong men. i don't want to go there, but we will not lose unless we have meaningful discussion with the union involved. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. yes, sir. >>> thank you, commissioners, art jensen with bosca. i think this is a great thing the commission did when they extend it had to a regional program to include workers outside san francisco that are paying two-thirds of the water bills and contributing to the
on earth. we live on the frozen tundra and in the searing deserts. we live in thriving cities of millions and in isolated camps of a few dozen. some societies seem simple because they are small and their members are self-sufficient and use simple tools. others seem complex because they have large populations and people depend on each other for food and goods and use sophisticated technology. in between, there is a range that fills the spectrum. all of these differences are cultural, learned behavior, the result of a complex interaction between our inventiveness and our natural environments. as we search for new horizons, our inventiveness thrusts us across the boundaries of space, into new worlds. this new view of earth dispels an ancient myopia -- the artificial boundaries of our states and the politics that often divide us. here is a vision of one planet and one family of humankind. but the view from earth reminds us of a common human dilemma, the rise and fall of our many ways of life. here, among the ruins of ancient civilizations, archaeologists are retracing the steps in a long and
with any other agencies. the references to the san jose city attorney's office are dated 9 months after that. but i think what is really important is that there is a, i think, a reference in an e-mail that it was mr. st craw who spoke to the city attorney about taking these cases. so what we don't know is how this magically happened, nine months later. there are also no e-mails or other written communications of any kind internally within the staff or with any of the commissioners with one exception which i will give you in a moment. so there is no way to track how this all came about. >> it is obvious that none of you were directly involved in the decision, which considering that it involved your... it had to be completely transparent and it had to be one that everybody would accept. i did find an e-mail from the chairman. it surprised me. it said, it went to mr. san croy. read shaw's complaints is there not any reason that we can't release san jose's analysis about why st san croy's allegations fall. i don't know much about ethics but i know this is not right. i have a lot of other in
and if that is something that they would even consider doing. >> i don't know whether the city attorney staff person will be able to speak for the commission. >> perhaps not. but perhaps she could answer the first question, at least. >> unless we know, does anybody... do you know that? >> do you know? >> i believe that it was the city attorney's office that was asked to handle this matter. >> the investigation. >> the investigation, yes. >> thank you. i am so sorry. i am lisa herrick and i was asked to review the referal from the sunshine task force, sunshine ordinance task force and i agree with mr. gibner that i am not sure that there is a legal authority under the procedures that your commission has in reviewing these referals from the sunshine ordinance task force to refer that to another adjudicatory body completely. it is one thing to have a staff person to review in place of ethics commission staff and you know, conform the analysis, based on proceedings before the task force. i think that it is another to send the ultimate decision to another body. >> it is actually being transcribed. on the
. it's a perfect time right now to get away with absolutely anything in city hall. you've got the sunshine ordinance, quietly paid off and snoozing. not even paying attention. why, you could put al-qaeda out here on the transportation authority and you could probably get away with it. because you've got the whole system rapped up. eth ethics commission, brown act. whichever way you want to go, san franciscans, we're ramming this down your throat. why? it's not about democracy, it's about communism. we tell you as a dictatorship what we think is best for you regardless of what the people voted for. regardless of what is good for the city and its citizens. and if you as supervisors and members of public sit back and allow this type of absolute tyranny shows you have no backbone or discretion and you'ra complete moron. >> thank you. >> is there anybody member of the public that would like to speak seeing none? public comment is closed. my suggestion would be make for each item that you explain exactly what the recommendation from the committee was, whether approval, non-approval
that will conclude the october 16 entertainment commission meeting for the city and county of san francisco. thank you one and all. . >> commissioner. >> here. >> commissioner harrison. >> here. >> commissioner arata. commissioner levitan. commissioner low. >> here. >> commissioner bo nilo has an excused absence and just as a reminder if we could have everyone turn off electronic sounding devices and you will have three minutes to comment on each item today unless otherwise noted by the president. when you do make public comment we ask that you address the item in front of you, and please note that you're making public comment to the commission. it is not a back and forth, so the commission at the end of your time may ask questions of staff and that is it. >> thank you. >> okay. so we are item number two which is the president's report. >> thank you. this will be brief, but i understand that at 1018 today somehow -- i know all over the counter ree -- maybe over the world people are ducking, covering and rolling. that applies to earthquake preparedness and it's not clear to me whether we are in
that a city officer or employee has engaged in improper activity by, again, violating campaign finance lobbying, conflicts of interest, or government ethics laws, regulations. the difference between them is that the complaints can be filed under 4.105 a. alleging many different violations of improper activities but under 4.105 d, not all of them are investigated pursuant to procedures in c3699-13. so the whole thing in my opinion is moot. . i believe that miss herrick, may have also have wrongly claimed that the california evidence code 1040, and its definition of official information, may have been misquoted and she may have incorrectly relied on deputy city attorney improper letter to the sunshine ordinance task force in which he wrongly combined two or three of dr. derek kurr's complaints under one ball of wax wrongly. he made a mistake when he did that. in section 1040 is not whether disclosure is permitted, it is whether disclosure is forbidden. jerry made that lettering error. how a deputy city attorney can confound forbidden can permitted and then, deputy city attorney herrick
more apparent how much of an enabler this body has been, it enables city bodies and personnel to evade their daoulties under the law and to hide that from public scrutiny. the whistle blower laws are not be used to protect the whistle blower but to protect the target. they are being used to hide the true facts of the investigation and to allow the city agency and employees to evade their actions. they hide the extent and the validity of the investigative process used by the ethics staff and the public records law are always intended to disclose rather than conceal public matters. instead these laws are purposefully misinterpreted to protect the agencies in question but also the ethics staff. as far as you not having a conflict of interest, let's look at the arts commission when they got the report from the civil grand jury that listed what they had done, including spending $300,000 on things that they had no legal authority to do so. charging fees, that they had no legal authority and fire the cultural director and replace the head of the commission. the bottom line is if you were a co
, there's an incompetent idiot in the office. thank you. i city that doesn't work. why? becau because -- you can get a bathroom built in the park. yes, you're absolutely you know what. thank you. next speaker, the beauty of free speech, people can say the most hateful things but still say them. >> i thought you went through red tape through castro to get hiv testing and there's a lot of red tape here. anyway, i just wanted to speak on sixth street because i live in the tenderloin. i have lived here 15, 16 years. most of time i have been living here. i have been here 23 years. the thing is and i bring it up at the community meetings. we need bicycle signs. i am beginning to hate them. they need, they need to hurry up and put something down at sixth and market. i'm not worrying about the cars and buses. but what's going on, the buses can get to one side or the other. that prevents the bicyclists from seeing if somebody is crossing the street when i have the right-of-way because i learned not to jay walk because of bicyclists. they don't have a sign saying stop here on red. they just kee
say he will be disciplined under the city schools code of conduct. an unidentified man was found shot inside a taxicab after an incident in east baltimore tonight. city police responded to the area of north central avenue and east preston street around 8:40. the victim's injuries are not life-threatening. there is no word yet on a possible suspect or motive. >> an active duty member of the u.s. navy was fatally shot last night in southwest baltimore. family members say that alonso gladden and his younger brother were unloading groceries for their grandmother when two men approached and someone opened fire before escaping in a dark vehicle. police have no motive or suspects at this time. family members described alonso as the smart one in the family who just had a promotion in the navy. they are understandably heartbroken. >> he made it out of the hood, did something good and came back to the united states for this? he did not deserve any of this at all. >> police are urging anyone with any information about this crime to call the homicide unit. metro crimestoppers is also offering a $
widespread flooding. jeff hager, abc2 news. >>> you remember when isabelle hit in baltimore city, there was a lot of flooding . that's where the condition is with sandy on the way and flooding in fells point and downtown. >> they are prepping. brian kuebler is live in fells point where they are starting to fill the sand bags. >> reporter: we know one of the most vulnerable parts of the city during storms is right here in fells point. it's why the city dutched a pile of sand at the pier for residents and businesses to get sandbags. workers are giving away six bags peperson and checking ids to keep track of that. it will go on until 9:00 and do so until 9:00 tomorrow night. they want folks to be ready because this storm could have a quote isabelle-type storm surge. a possibility many business open rs down here are well aware -- owners down here are well aware of. >> we have the tv channels and looking at the models. it doesn't look good. >> what goes through your mind? >> a lot of prayers. >> reporter: now, in an hour, the city will open two more locations like this one, is sand di
commission certificate of honor recognizing a city employee (jennifer matz) as part of the sbc "city employee recognition program". i believe director dickens has some opening remarks. >> yes, thank you. so, jennifer matz, please step up to the podium. as part -- the small business commission has the recognition program for employees of the city and county of san francisco who have really -- who have either support our small businesses and in your case you have been a real champion for the small business commission and our office. so, commissioner mark dwight has nominated you to receive recognition from the small business commission, and he is going to be presenting you with our certificate of recognition. >> okay. now, the official business here. certificate of honor -- where is the camera? [laughter] >> okay. so, this is the official certificate of honor, small business commission of the city and county of san francisco acknowledging jennifer matz from the office of economic and workforce development, on this monday, october 22nd, 2012, the small business commission is proud to acknowledge
a profit in a city that is over-taxing the and running down. [applause] >> i do think that you can do a lot through talking to your city supervisor and working through that process. i am telling you, there are ways that began help you. alcohol is a local issue on this type of matter. what we are behind would you guys want to do, whenever that is. a lot of times we do not always have statutes that make that much sense. it is partly the ways that the laws have evolved and we are the ones who are stuck with enforcing them the way that they are. that does not necessarily mean that we think they are particularly good ideas, but we certainly want people to grow, prosper, and be saved. that can be achieved in all sorts of ways. we want to work with you on that. thank you. >> i was the founding president of the entertainment commission. i retired and went on to found the culture association, the first trade association statewide for night life, bar, and restaurant activities. i am here with a question that plagues a lot of these license holders, who desire to have their establishment opened for all
-roots organization "our city". so i wanted on the last note the green fest is november 10, and 11. some of the advocates will be there putting out community choice material and i think you guys had plans to be there. i'm not sure. and just wanted to kind of back up what ms. hale was saying it will take -- that november 30 we will have some of the stuff crunched that has come in from local power and other consultants but there is still a long way to go to learn about -- especially the possibility of offering customers and even to your point commissioner olague even low income customers to buy into shares of the program or to get energy efficiency installed in tandem for signing up with the program so there are reasons to reach out even to the communities we're not planning to enroll in the first phase and that is really important. the last point that i would raise just to make sure it's on everybody's radar screen, and i ask all the commissioners to hear this one because it's something i haven't brought up before, and commissioner campos i think you were at least at a hearing about the
the eastern shore. we do still have the 400-mile spread between ocean city to north as atlantic city and one mile taking it north, closer to new york city. it really is all tracked dependant on what type of effects we will feel from the storm. we know this storm is going to produce surf. looking at the reports along the coastal sections of florida, 17-18-foot waves with gusts close to 30 miles an hour. that's gail force winds extending from the center. this is a historic storm potential for maryland, a long duration event. monday through wednesday, eastern bay flood risk is high. high winds, heavy rains, you got to keep it locked on channel 2. we will break down a track scenario, what to expect from each coming up in a little bit. >>> thank you very much. that is good, the two wild cards, precise place for the storm comes ashore, make preparations now and saturday sp sunday, looking okay w the storm arriving later than first thought, we are talking about a monday morning arrival, lingering in to tuesday, and wednesday. let's head to the news desk. >>> emergency managers throughout the stat
of animal abuse in baltimore city. >> and left to die inside an abandoned home. in the newsroom with "abc news" tonight. >> that dog survived a six- month-old pit bull tied up. we have to warn you that the video is very disturbing. the people at the barts animal shelter wanted us to show it because the case is disturbing as well. >>> animal control officers brought her to the bart shelter today, where workers named her molly. >> i walked out and saw her to do her intake. i immediately started crying. >> there are fresh bite wounds and all of them deep infected. >> ap here, her ears, ripped in half. >> there's also skin missing on both of the dog's sides with infection causing the area to budge out. it's better than 50% chance molly will survive. >> the severity of the infection that spread. she's losing layers of skin. >> and lisa will be molly's foster caretaker for now. >> and the dog needs antiobiotics, clean her wounds and rest. >> we are not sure whether she will be able to keep it or not but we will try. >> the dog was found here on the appan donned home -- abandoned home. a a contr
and local law prohibits discrimination against or harassment of city employees based on sex, race, and other categories listed below, so if you can be constructive in your community comments about the concerns that is helpful. >> >> but bringing race into it is not healthy for this dialogue. thank you. >>i am concerned for the past 11 years members in this city and county have voted and they have had a resolution that says that their parks system would be modernize in the quickest efficient manner possible. now, you have taken it upon yourself to ignore that resolution, and hey it's somewhere between a loss between the city and here. we don't understand that. that is discrimination at a federal level. that is discrimination way beyond anything anybody could ever say at this podium, so it's kind of ironic that you're sitting there discriminating against the very san franciscans that gave you this commission. every breath you take while you're on this board is a discriminatory one because the people that built this city built this park system never envisioned that people with your caliber o
tell you how i handle files in the city of san jose. i typically a e-mail, or a letter memo, any communication that talks about when we are going to meet, would not be... it would be procedural. having said that, whom i sent that to is kind of gives a road map to the investigation whether i sent it to aband c, but not to dand e, i think is something that is important to the background of the investigation and that would... and that would be something that i would think should be protected. >> basically you are saying that the identity of who you are interviewing, and the individuals or witnesses that you are interviewing that is... if the correspondence revealed that, you would not disclose that. >> absolutely. >> and there may be other information too. i mean we are speaking abstractly, so i... you know i am doing the best that i can. i think that yes, absolutely, the identity of anyone that the controller's office was adjudicating, like (inaudible) during the course of the investigation (inaudible) protected confidential. >> i am trying to understand what kind of information co

of a discussion about what else the city can do to help the school district reach that objective? and i know that there is additional supportal funding that supervisor kim has introduced. and a number of us are supportive of that. but i would like to have an even greater discussion that goes beyond the specific amount of money. but what else is it that we can do to collectively reach that objective? because to the extent that resources are a big problem here, is there -- are there additional things that the city can do with the resources that we do have to help in this effort? and to me, that discussion will also involve a discussion about what different city agencies, what role they can play in this effort? you know, what is it -- what kind of support system is needed to help a student achieve academic success? and academic success doesn't just happen in the classroom. it's something that requires an entire community school district has the responsibility to make it happen. so i would like to figure out how we as a city and county can be even more helpful? because i think that we'r
